start a task in Taskwarrior, the hook script will start time tracking in Timewarrior.
The hook captures the description, project and tags of the task and passes them to Timewarrior as tags.
It triggers for any command that modifies the
start property of a task.
It also picks up any modifications the aforementioned properties on the tracked task and updates the tracked task in Timewarrior accordingly.

The hook script is open source, written in Python, so feel free to inspect and adjust it to your needs.
Below you can see a usage example: create a task, start it, complete it and automatically track it.
